These unscrupulous people always seem to be getting away with their crimes. In a case that was registered at Gittikhadan Police Station on January 1, 2015, some unknown accused has withdrawn Rs one crore ninety six lakhs, twenty nine thousand  (Rs 1,96,29,00,0/-) from the account of Air Force Unit from State Bank of India Vayusena Nagar Branch using forged cheques.
